Cruises to Central America

Popular Central American Cruise Destinations

  • Costa Rica: Looking to swim underneath waterfalls, zip line through the jungle, or swing in a beachside hammock? Costa Rica’s ecotourism can’t be beat. Whether you’re hiking through Pos Volcano National Park or picking up souvenirs in the port town of Puntarenas, nothing tops Central American cruises to Costa Rica.
  • Belize: When you’re trying to maximize your time in the water, book a cruise to Belize. Snorkeling around Ambergis Caye or scuba diving near the Great Blue Hole are captivating experiences. The lighthouses and boutique shops of Belize City are also bound to dazzle.
  • El Salvador: Visit Mayan ruins in Tazumal, trek around the 1,200-acre Volcanoes National Park, or take a day excursion along “La Ruta de Las Flores,” the famed Flower and Coffee Trail.
  • Panama Canal: Panama Canal cruises are a unique way to explore Central America. Traversing the canal takes roughly 20 hours, and you’ll witness tropical Caribbean destinations and impressive engineering accomplishments along the way.

What should I pack for a cruise around Central America?

  • Waterproof jacket: When you’re planning for shore excursions, think ahead and bring along a waterproof jacket. Depending on what ports of call you want to hit in Central America, you may encounter intermittent rain storms.
  • Walking sandals: Looking to tour national parks and repel down waterfalls? You need a good pair of shoes to keep the adventure going.
  • Sun protection: Sunglasses, comfortable hats, and sunscreen are all musts. Reapply sunscreen throughout the day, so you don’t spend the entirety of your vacation treating an aching sunburn.
